Bahar: The PLC will continue working as usual after January 25
Bahar: The PLC will continue working as usual after January 25

BEIRUT, (PIC)-- Dr. Ahmed Bahar, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), stated Wednesday that the current council would continue its work in the same vigor and energy after January 25, unless there were new elections held together in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem.

Dr. Bahar warned that holding general elections under the current division would deepen internal rift and entrench geographical separation between Gaza and the West Bank.

He said that the talk about holding legislative and presidential elections in the West Bank without Gaza is a serious decision that fulfils the Zio-American dictates.

In another context, Lebanese speaker Nabih Berri stressed in a statement distributed by the international campaign to release the detained MPs in Israeli jails on Wednesday his parliament’s full solidarity with the issue of the Palestinian lawmakers imprisoned in Israeli jails.

Berri affirmed he would raise the issue of the kidnapped lawmakers during his official visits and all international meetings and promised to be in constant contact with the international campaign for the release of Palestinian lawmakers to work on their release.

The speaker pointed to the efforts made by the Lebanese parliament in Beirut last August to raise the issue of MPs in Israeli jails through sending letters to a number of Arab and international parliaments.

This statement came in response to the letter sent by Palestinian speaker Dr. Aziz Dweik to his Lebanese counterpart.
